The part that I don't get is this: It appears to me that what Monsanto actually produces is a product that causes pollution of non-Monsanto crops. How does Monsanto end up on the winning side of these cases? If anything they should be the ones getting sued. Does the fact that they got a patent on the result of their pollution matter that much?

  


By this logic and legal precedent I'm actually surprised coal power plants don't patent their air pollution then sue everyone who is contaminated by said pollution for using their patented material. Absurd logic.

Our government should never have allowed this company to patent a seed. It is life!

Voting and lawsuits won't really make change. They've tied up all loose ends. Just be prepared.

It doesn't matter even if we boycott certain products. They will just find another way. Ruthless.

Why not plant some other crop Monsanto doesn't make, and simply burn the Monsanto corn that sprouts?
